Point of Interest Details

Designed by Burlington architect Charles A. Dunham, Christchurch was originally referred to as early English type architecture. The structure is such as can be seen in many parts of England. A round tower terminating in a squarer belfry covered with a high-pitched gallery is one of the more unique features of the building. The original interior walls were decorated in Polychrome by Burlington artist David H. Johnson, who was also did the interior of the first Baptist Church. The side windows of colored glass were made and designed by Dr. Johnson, the rector. This church has endured two fires. And it's been reconstructed after those two fires. The one thing that has not been harmed in each of these two fires is a stunning stained glass window that was created by Tiffany.
